Rossogollar (Bengal sweet)

Again from an old issue of Women's Era comes a well-known Bengal sweet. Popular all over the world. Given here with a twist as its pressure - cooked.


Ingredients :-

Paneer - 500 gms (absolutely dry with all the water squeezed out)

Sugar - 10 gms (to be kneaded into flour)

Sugar - 500 gms (for syrup)

Rice flour / arrowroot powder - 30 gms

Water - 750 ml

Rose Water - 4-5 drops

Method : -

  1. Knead the paneer and flour into a fine paste (you may use the mixer for this)
  2. Continue kneading till the paneer stops sticking to the basin/bowl.
  3. Knead in the 10 gm sugar. Divide into 34 portions and roll into smooth balls. Cover with a wet cloth.
  4. Boil the 500 gms sugar and 750 ml water and reduce the sugar to a thick syrup in a pressure cooker. When the syrup is boling briskly, add the paneer balls.
  5. Cook for 5 minutes. Sprinkle some rose water.
  6. Serve warm or chilled.
